House of the Week: Wavy-Roofed Montana Retreat
90 S Fork Deep Creek Rd, Livingston MT
For sale: $699,000
Talk about whimsical. Underneath the wavy roof of this picturesque Montana retreat sits an endless lap pool in the living room (yes, the living room) and the master bedroom is located within a grain-silo-like structure. It’s not your typical home on the range by any means.
“The owner dictated what she wanted,” explained listing agent Tracy Raich. “It was all her idea.”
With the grand Absaroka-Beartooth Mountains behind it, the metal and Douglas fir-clad 2-bedroom, 2-bath home blends into the rural landscape. An open floor plan gives the home a loft-like space with concrete floors, exposed beams and soft plaster walls — a space Raich describes as warm and “sun-drenched.” The waves of the roof are reflected in the curves of the ceiling in the main living area, which combines the living and dining room and kitchen. The bedrooms flank either side. At one corner of the living area is an endless lap pool framed in river stones.
The master suite in the silo is connected to the main house by a hallway that contains the master bath with steam shower and marble bath. Windows and French doors open out from the silo into the yard.
Situated on a little over two acres, Raich says the property has the allure of a Montana ranch without the responsibility.
“It borders a 1,700-acre working ranch,” Raich said. “So you can enjoy all that but you don’t have to take care of it.”
The home is also close to a trail head accessing Gallatin National Forest, 1.8-million acres of land in the Northern Rockies. But despite the proximity to Gallatin, the home is only ten miles from downtown Livingston. A location, says Raich, that is nearly as unique as the home.
